Member Update - July 1st

Monday, 6 July 2020

We would like to thank all of our members, volunteers and staff for the fantastic resilience and efforts they have made over the past few months as we have all responded to the Covid-19 crisis. It has been fantastic to see so many groups develop creative ways of continuing to engage and inspire children and young people. We would particularly like to thank the #DreamBigAtHome team and everyone who has shared practice to help the movement learn and respond.

Put your Spring clear out to good use and help us raise funds!

Thursday, 28 May 2020

Have you been using this time in lockdown as an opportunity for a Spring clear out?

If the answer's yes, please think about using those unwanted items to help us raise much needed funds for Woodcraft Folk.

EBay has launched a Big Charity Sell where you can sell your unwanted items and opt for up to 100% of the proceeds to be donated directly to a charity of your choice.

According to eBay UK an estimated £51 million worth of unwanted items have been thrown away during lockdown.

We are adapting our work to reach as many children and young people as possible during the COVID-19 outbreak – but we need your help!

Our Development Team has been producing guidance and training for our team of 3,000 volunteers in how to stay safe online and facilitate engaging programme.
